PSL 2019 Match 11: Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi (Pre-Match)


Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi will be the 2nd game of today’s doubleheader in HBL PSL 2019. Last time these 2 teams met in PSL 2018 final in which Islamabad United came victorious courtesy of a quick half-century from Luke Ronchi and sixes of Asif Ali.

Team News

Islamabad United had a wonderful start to the PSL 4 when they beat Lahore Qalandars in the first match of the tournament. But since then, they have suffered back to back defeats and would like to come back to winning form. On the other side, Peshawar Zalmi were defeated by Quetta Gladiators in the first match but made a great comeback, beating Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings in their next 2 games.

In the last game, Islamabad United included Rumman Raees and Wayne Parnell and both are expected to retain their places especially Parnell who was the leading run scorer for Islamabad United in their match against Quetta Gladiators  – smashing 45 runs from just 20 balls lower down the order. Rumman Raees was also among the wickets in the last match.

Batting will be a big concern for Peshawar Zalmi. Kamran Akmal has not contributed with the bat in the last 2 games and they also need someone who can stabilize the innings in the middle order. Peshawar Zalmi will be waiting on an update about Misbah ul Haq who missed the last 2 games due to injury. Fast bowling is the main strength of Peshawar Zalmi and Hasan Ali has been in hot form picking up 8 wickets in just last 2 games. Chris Jordan can be included in place of Wayne Madsen who has scored just 4 runs in 2 games.
